By David Kennedy, Joseph E. Stiglitz

Policymakers and economists principally agree that "rule of legislations" and estate rights are crucial for a valid monetary coverage, really for many constructing international locations. however it is turning into more and more obvious that transplanting felony frameworks from one society to a different does not work--even notwithstanding neoliberal orthodoxy has held that it's going to. China's financial improvement deals a backdrop for constructing substitute viewpoints on those matters. during this booklet, economists, teachers, and policymakers wade immediately into the dialogue, utilizing China as a concrete reference element. the quantity is the results of a chain of dialogues between lecturers and policymakers from China and all over the world. whereas the authors should not in any respect of 1 brain on many stuff, they do proportion the conviction that China is now getting into a severe part in its monetary improvement and in its transition to a relatively chinese language industry financial system. The essays disguise a extensive diversity of topics which have been really suitable in China's progress, from estate rights to social rights, company rights, associations, highbrow estate, and justice. even though the paintings completely analyzes the simplest regulatory and institutional frameworks for China's evolving financial and political approach, its final aim is greater: it seeks to help policymakers in either constructing and built international locations to create--or within the latter case reform--institutional and regulatory frameworks to accomplish equitable and sustained development.

How do—and how should—legal and economic expertise relate to one another in development policy planning? And how might we improve our policymaking in the post-neoliberal period by harnessing related heterogeneous traditions in economics and legal science? The answers to these questions require some history. The policy debates about Chinese development policy that are the subject of this volume contrast doubts and hesitations about what had been neoliberal orthodoxies in development policy circles in the West with the experience and choices available to policymakers in China today.

Over the last twenty or more years, thinking about development issues in the field of legal science has in some ways paralleled that in economics and sociology. There was a set of dominant ideas about law during the neoliberal period, even as policymakers focused more insistently on macroeconomic stability, privatization, shocks to world prices, and the rest of the now classic neoliberal development program. Among other things, this set of ideas downplayed the potential for public law and regulation while foregrounding private law.

A wide range of previously settled fields of law were opened to new legislation and interpretation in furtherance of the social objectives of national solidarity and national economic development. This instrumental or pragmatic approach to law stressed the importance of purposive reasoning to link legal arrangements with social needs and objectives. The purposes came from elsewhere—from the society, from government, from the legislature. Law was subordinate to social purposes—implementing the objectives of the society—rather than expressing a priori limits, historic commitments to be respected, or purposes of its own to be achieved.
